Amateur Photographer: Weekend Wedding

Here are a few shots from a wedding I helped a friend shoot. None of the pictures are of faces due to the fact that I haven't yet given the pictures over to the Bride & Groom.

Photography has always been a hobby of mine. I often think about going professional (getting paid to do it) but... maybe. maybe not.

I love weddings, especially really romantic weddings where everything is genuine; nothing contrived. Weddings where the sentiments that are expressed are so meaningful and everyone is having a good time and the new family relationships (inlaws) are a match also.

My husband is off to the American continent to visit his folks. I could have gone but I have so much to do back here that it just wasn't the right time. I miss him dearly. The last time we were apart was in 2009 when I attended a conference for work in Oklahoma. Now, he's in Oklahoma visiting his mother, sister, and aunt for the week. I'm glad he could go but I feel so lost without him. I cried all the way home from the airport and thought of how much my dad must miss my mom too. **sigh**

Anyway -- enjoy the pics. I loved editing them! Click on the pic to enlarge it.

The bride was getting ready in a tiny banquet room. There was a ladder left in there from the setup. It was the perfect prop!

I love the shoes. At least everyone matched. The bride opted for some tennis shoes for comfort and so that she wouldn't tower over the groom.

Ringless hand... not yet married. Palms sweaty. Nervous.

The bracelet on the Brides wrist is special to her.

I love the lighting in this.

It's not official until you sign.

Execute the document that merges your two lives.

Mirrors and candle light.

The head table.

Head table ready for the arrival of the wedding party.

Cut the cake.

The cake looked so delicious. I so wanted some but they didn't distribute it to the guests.

Green anthuriums. Nice.
